Based on the premise that schools' only contact with many citizens is through written communication, this booklet provides guidelines for educators on how to improve written messages from the school to parents and the general public. Recommendations are offered regarding the timing, length, and content of communications; writing style and word usage; layout and other visual considerations; the use of photographs; and the writing of difficult letters to parents. Also provided in the booklet are tips for preparing and distributing effective school newsletters, and brief notes on other internal and external publications, such as handbooks for students, parents, and substitute teachers.
